When I think of the best cleans tones in the world, I think of Vox and Fender. The fender cleans are probably the best and the Vox has a darker woodier tone that is instantly recognizable. The Vox to me has the best tone for a pedal to go in front of an amp. I have played many Vox's and they are hands down the best clean amps to throw a pedal in front of.

SOUNDS

There really isn't one guitar or pedal that works best with this amp. Try anything you like because it all sounds very good. Play a Fender Strat and an Ibanez TS9 and you will be in heaven with the tones that come out of these speakers. This sounds great with an Electro Harmonics Big Muff as well. One of my favorite tones on the planet is a Vox AC with a Big Muff in front of it. This combination is so epic and note worthy that it makes playing the guitar so enjoyable.

OVERALL OPINION

If you don't have the money to spring for a Vox Ac30 or a vintage one then this might be right up your ally. At new they come in at around $600. That is a heck of a price for a solid tube amp that it light weight and portable. Don't let the 15 watt scare you into not producing loud usable tones. These amps get pretty stinking loud!

I would recommend this amp to anyone who needs a great clean amp and doesn't want to spend $1000's on a Matchless or Divided by 13 amp. Those are great amps too, but to me this is where its at tone wise. The only setback it they are made in Red China. So that is how they get the price down this low. If you need an American made Vox then go with a Hayseed amp.
